PennDOT has made a change to the Fee for Local Use Annual Fee, section 1935(b) of the Vehicle Code. It was amended to make the Fee for Local Use an annual fee (the extra $5 you pay to register your vehicle).
The fee will now be based on the number of years a customer wants to register their vehicle. Customers who register their vehicle for multiple years will pay the annual $5 fee for every year of registration. This means a customer will pay a fee of $10 for a two-year and $25 for a five-year vehicle registration.
The fee is collected by PennDOT at the time the vehicle is initially registered and when the registration is renewed. The annual fee will not be collected at the time a registration is transferred to another vehicle.
This amended policy becomes effective on February 21, 2019.
